    Yeah until the Gophers won then they all started whining. I remember the guy who went frame by frame to explain how Vanek interfered with the goalie on his ridiculous GWG.

    And even though Donald was nuts...Drop the Puck was fun when he mocked "Robot Hockey" and went on his rants about either the Gophers or his own squad UAA.

    Apparently, he was a former DU or professional player. Whoever took part in the Denver FF Poster's game met him, and said that you'd know who he was if they gave out his name. I never bothered researching it from there, his identity is none of my business.

    I looked up career stats, and Pooley was 2 games off from being a 0.500 coach. Army was much, much worse.

    Pooley had a crazy post season run in 1995 and good seasons in 1996, 1999, 2001 and 2003 and he’s been great at Notre Dame as an associate coach. It's possible we were unfair to him.
    Army’s first season was okay. Everything after that was disappointing.

    I was thrilled when I found Hockey-L because it was still very difficult to find anything about college hockey here in DC at that time. Just about everyone used their real name there, and I carried that over here. I have wanted for a long time to change it but have been too lazy to attempt to do so. Thankfully, because of the late computer game pioneer whom I shared a name with, it takes some effort to find anything about me on the Internet.

    Or as the Freds used to say, Dump and Suck.

    There was game at Lowell during the height of the Dump and Watch where PC spent the entirety of the third period cycling endlessly in the Lowell zone. The UML Pep Band began playing slow jazz tunes during stops in play. Fun.

    I try to avoid the Cafe, not because I hate non-hockey conversations, but I have a feeling that my political commentary would involve endless complaining about every side of the political spectrum until everyone hated me expect the cat.

    I used to enjoy aggravating Foxton and Priceless who were deadly serious about winning the internet. Priceless has undergone a few identity changes since and has matured enough that I don't recognize him/her by that trademark insane ranting anymore (if they are still here). Foxton is probably in prison.
    Huskies are very intelligent and trainable. Huskies make an excellent jogging companion, as long as it is not too hot. Grooming is minimal; bathing is normally unnecessary.

    There are at least a half dozen USCHOers who I'd put money on either being in prison or killed in a bar fight. That's in addition to the one I'm assuming has been astrally projected to the Reptilian planet before he could foil The Plan.

    Foxton has a hard time not lashing out at people. That doesn't go over well in prison.
